Vegan Cheese Sauce

(makes 8 servings)


● 1 cup (130 g) peeled & diced white potatoes

● ¼ cup (30 g) carrots, diced

● 3 Tbsp chopped onion

● ½ cup (60 g) raw cashews

● ¼ cup (15 g) nutritional yeast flakes

● 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

● ½ tsp garlic powder

● 1 tsp Dijon mustard

● 1 dash hot sauce, optional


Place the potatoes, carrots, and onion in a medium pot with 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and let cook until tender, about 10-15 minutes.


Carefully drain the pot, saving 1 cup of the broth. Add the reserved broth and veggies to a high-speed blender, blending until smooth.


Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth. Serve and enjoy!


This will keep for about a week in the refrigerator.
